I like to cheat one day a week.. I think it keeps me honest But this weekend, my fiancee and I had fondue. chocolate with strawberries, marshmellows and banana.. OOHHH GODDDD it was soooo awesome. You know.. I like sugar free dark chocolate better than regular dark chocolate. I see no point in sugar in chocolate now days Also I cant do milk chocolate anymore.. too sweet lol.. who knew right

I don't look at it as cheating, but keeping it in moderation. I don't have specific days, or items, or amounts. I just know what I've eaten in a day and whether or not I can really allow for something I want. If I didn't save room for it, I try to compromise. Like, instead of the Boston Cream donut, a small piece of dark chocolate will help with the sweet and chocolate cravings.

I budget calories one day every weekend, either Sat or Sun morning, for a 16 oz white mocha made with lowfat milk from my favorite coffee shop. Because a life without mochas is a life not worth living. And I figure once a week is a good amount. Not sure it's a *cheat*, since I know upfront that I get that once per week and bargain my calories around it, but...

I'm with almostheaven. Nothing is cheating--I don't think that way, 'cause who am I cheating? Everything counts. Like almostheaven, I know what I've been eating and whether I can have a food or not.

One treat food that I sometimes have the calories for is Ghirardelli 60% cocoa chocolate chips. 16 chips is 80 calories, and they provide a little bit of sweet (8 grams carbs--about equivalent to 2 teaspoons sugar) and really good quality chocolate. And, because I'm not a real chocoholic, I can stop with 16.

Honestly, I don't really have any "cheats" but I do have flexibility to allow myself things once in a while that I wouldn't otherwise have. I allow myself to eat out once a week, although I'm careful when I do. I think limiting my eating out to once a week helps give me a "treat" while also being in control when I do so.

It probably would have been, if you'd gotten it "normal". The whipped cream and full-fat milk pack on the calories pretty darn quickly. I can't quite bring myself to go to skim milk - I don't ever use skim at home, the stuff is like translucent-opaque water with little taste, why would I water down my mocha that way? - but I'll compromise with lowfat.

For comparison, here's the nutritional info on a 16 oz mocha "normal" (w/whip and whole milk):

Serving Size 16 fl. oz.

And here's the same info for a 16 oz mocha, fat-free (they don't show lowfat on the website, dammit) with no whip:

I have to agree with almostheaven, JayEll and Nelie - I don't really 'cheat'... everything that goes in must be counted. That being said, I don't deprive myself of anything at all - but if I have used all my calories, something like the cheesecake slice or the chocolate pudding can absolutely wait until the next day!

I don't think of it as cheating either! I fit it into my day. I have a leader at WW who calls it her "90/10 rule". If you eat healthy foods 90% of the time and not-so-healthy foods the other 10%, you can live with that right? It sure is acceptable to me So I try to eat lots of whole, natural foods most of the time and every once in a while I will fit in some ice cream or chocolate kisses. I always fit them into my plan though, so I never think of it as cheating!

I also agree that I don't cheat-and I follow the 90/10 rule as well. I usually eat about 1500 calories a day, so I allow UP TO 150 calories for treat type stuff-and the rest as clean as possible. Yesterday, I had chocolate protein powder in pudding form, with a tablespoon of Cool Whip Lite. The protein wasn't actually a cheat-but the 20 calories of Cool Whip made it seem like it.

Some days I will go out to a restaurant, but I be careful on what to order, and consider that my "treat" for the day. Every now and then if DH and the kids want a fast food place, then I will get a veggie burger from Burger King, or a Fruit and Yogurt Parfait if they go to McDonalds or something-and I savor it.
